Swamp Cabbage is a dark and sweaty documentary about Hayley Downs, a half-Cracker stuck in Brooklyn who discovers that the eccentric Florida childhood she fled is actually the key to surviving love and loss in an increasingly fragile world. An unlikely collision of rural Florida and urban Brooklyn cultures, Hayley’s tragicomic journey through sunshine-state mythology, pop zeitgeist, toxic relationships, Cracker foodways, and disappearing habitat ultimately changes how we view conservation, community, and the food chain.
Hayley Downs is a documentary filmmaker, editor and producer.

She Produced/Broadcast Edited Naturally Obsessed about high stakes lab research. Naturally Obsessed is distributed by PBS International.
